Bored of seeing the same old white Santa? Well you’re in luck.

A new children’s book will depict jolly old Saint Nick as a gay black married man,publisher Harper Design announced.

Santa’s Husband will tell the tale of Santa, who is black, and his husband, who is white, both of whom live and work in the North Pole.

In the book, it’s revealed Santa’s husband fills in for his partner at mall appearances.

Daniel Kibblesmith, a staff writer for The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, penned the Christmas parody.

‘[We] have decided our future child will only know about Black Santa,’ he wrote.

If they see a white one we’ll say “That’s his husband”.’

Kibblesmith tweeted a photo of the book’s original concept art, showing the interracial couple in Santa suits.

Santa’s Husband is set to be released on 10  October.
